She’s not your competition; Day thirteen

blog headerCompetition in perspective need not be about today’s or tomorrow’s result.  It is the tool to building a preferred future in which our brilliance is magnified, our failings minimised or developed and we find ourselves living our preferred future.

So every time you compete and achieve less than you intended, ask yourself ‘Why?’ What was missing? What went wrong?  How can I improve?  Every time we take our shortcomings and make sense of them we are using competition as a tool for the future.

When we bravely face competition, both with and against others, we provide the opportunity of forging significant friendships that can endure the tyranny of distance and the far reaches of time.
